After Bruce Dickinson quit Iron Maiden after their ninth album Fear of the Dark, he went on to
pursue a solo career in which he has, up to thispoint, released six studio albums. His earlier efforts
such as Tattooed Millionare and Balls to Picasso diverged from the sound he createdwith
Maiden, but on later ones, including Accident of Birth and The Chemical Wedding, he went
back to his heavy metal roots. Even afterrejoining Iron Maiden in the 2000's, Dickinson's solo career
continues. His most recent outing is 2005's Tyranny of Souls.
